Southwestern Spicy Habenero Smashed Potatoes

Yes, needless to say, I like it hot. It seems as though everything we make has a spirited kick. I have detailed how we, at any given time, have a minimum of 6 different hot sauces and several types of peppers in our pantry. I have always had a love of all things fiery. When I was very young, my Grandfather would make Jalapeno dip ( a recipe which I will most certainly share with you all soon) and even as a wee tyke I would scoop it up and devour it with relish. Clearly, I was not your typical PB&J loving child....more

Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Cilantro Pepita Pesto from Pinch My Salt

As much as I love winter squash, I'm not a fan of sweet winter squash soups, which is why I love the sound of this Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Cilantro Pepita Pesto from Pinch My Salt. Nicole has given the soup interesting flavors with chiles, smoked paprika, cumin, garlic, and onions, and then she tops it with a pesto that's made from pepitas, garlic, cilantro, Parmesan, lime juice, and olive oil. I'd love this spicy soup for Meatless Monday meal, and I think it would make a great Thanksgiving appetizer soup as well. ...more

Salsa Anyone ?

Salsa Anyone?The thing about food is that even though we eat at least three times a day, really only few meals make it to the “Wow” part of the brain.Why is that?There are recipes we make over and over again without loosing the “Wow” syndrome.  No matter where or when or with whom we share them with we still get the same wonderful feeling of self approval. The kind where we pause, close our eyes, smile and declare: “This is good!”...more

Spicy Cauliflower Soup from A Veggie Venture

Did you know there are two holidays today? Of course everyone knows it's Martin Luther King Day in the U.S., but you might not know that it's International Hot and Spicy Food Day. As soon as I heard that I thought it would be fun to find something that was unexpectedly spicy for Meatless Monday. What I wanted was a hot and spicy recipe for a dish that's not normally hot and spicy, and Spicy Cauliflower Soup from A Veggie Venture fits that description perfectly. Most cauliflower soups are rich and creamy but this one is healthful and deliciously spiced with coriander, cumin, chili powder, and turmeric in addition to the red pepper flakes. Alanna says the inspiring recipe suggests you could eat it with a dollop of plain yogurt, and I'd definitely want that on mine to cool down the heat....more
